Oracle MOD Function

12 ratings | 919 views
https://www.databasestar.com/oracle-remainder-mod/ The Oracle MOD function performs a “modulo division” on the numbers you specify. A modulo division is where a division is performed using two numbers, and the remainder is returned by the function. For example, the division of 8/5 is 1.6. Using modulo division, 8/5 will work out there is one 5 contained in the 8, with 3 left over. The MOD function would return 3 in this example. The syntax of the MOD function is: MOD(numerator, denominator) The numerator is the number mentioned first in the division, or the one that is on top of the division sign. In a division such as 15/4, this would be the 15. The denominator is the number mentioned second in the devision, or hte one that is on the bottom of the division sign. In a division such as 15/4, this would be the 4. The parameters can be any numeric data type, and the return type depends on these parameters. This means MOD can return a whole number or a decimal number. The calculation for the Oracle MOD function is: numerator - denominator * FLOOR(numerator / denominator). If the denominator is 0, the function returns the value of the numerator. This is done to prevent “divide by 0” errors.
